Why, apart from Mass surveillance reasons must the Hawaaki cable come ashore in the USA, where it could have come offshore in a place like Japan?
Japan also has world class internet infrastructure, possibly more so then the US.
Not only that, but Japan is also more than 2000km closer, than the nearest place of land in mainland US.
Wouldn't it just seem reasonable if the new cable came ashore somewhere in Asia?
really with all the Mass surveillance documented by Snowden, and the massive classified intelligence site, where the SX cable first comes ashore, I'm just concerned the current cable, and plans for a new one, actually require the cable to go to the US, for interception reasons, other than convenience.
Asia is far closer, and will have more than enough infrastructure to handle massive amounts of high speed data, so why does it have to go via the US?
